If you only want to go up about one cup size or so and prefer not to have implants, fat grafting is the next best thing. Fat grafting involves surgically removing fat from one area of the body (with microliposuction) and transplanting it to another. Even though some of the fat will be absorbed, the majority of it lasts indefinitely.
Fat is a natural filler, so the results don’t look “operated on.” There is minimal scarring as opposed to the larger scars left from implants. Plus, “the tissue is your own and does not need periodic replacement like implants do,” says Salt Lake City, UT, plastic surgeon Renato Saltz.
When a woman receives implants during reconstructive surgery, she may experience some implant deformities. Some experts find supplemental fat injections to be an outstanding option for smoothing and reshaping reconstructed breasts with implants.
